Suspect shot and killed during attempted robbery in Moultrie

MOULTRIE, Ga. (WCTV) — Moultrie Police are investigating an attempted robbery-turned-deadly at the Susie Q on Highway 319 Tuesday morning.

Some in the Baell Trace Court neighborhood said they heard the gunfire.

“We live in a good neighborhood and just hearing a gunshot that late at night you knew something was wrong,” said one concerned homeowner, who requested to talk off camera.

She says it’s a popular gas station her family visits often.

“I’m just glad none of my family was up there,” said the homeowner.

Moultrie Police say two armed suspects entered the store around 2 a.m. One was shot multiple times.

They say the 19-year-old suspect, Jaelon Powell, suffered multiple gunshot wounds. About an hour after he was admitted to a local hospital, he died from his injuries.

“Unfortunately, Mr. Powell lost his life as a result of trying to commit an armed robbery,” said Lt. Freddie Williams with the Moultrie Police Department.

One of two clerks was shot in the leg, but was released from the hospital late Tuesday.

Police say a second gunman, 18-year-old Joshua Sims, and a teenager have been arrested. They’re now facing felony murder for their involvement in Powell’s death.

    One perp doing the eternal dirt nap; another in the hospital with involuntary body piercing via high-speed heavy metal injection resulting in serious injuries; two other perps in custody and facing felony murder charges; and the last perp also in custody. Sounds like a good day for armed citizens.

    Too bad about the clerk who also got shot, though. Hopefully that individual makes a full and speedy recovery.

    “shot by a security guard after he pepper sprayed the guard”

    But he did not “a salt” the guard.

    Funny looking Garand with no bayonet lug and something wierd going on at the muzzle end.
    Or not.

    • Looks like part of the barrel is separated from the stock by looking at it, I see part of the green background. My right thumb throbbed as I was too slow removing it from the follower while doing inspection arms awaiting the Flag to come aboard the OKIE 3. The GM 1 Smitty said that I was just introduced to the infamous M-1 Thumb.

        Learn how to recover from inspection arms properly with the edge of your hand blocking the operating rod handle and that won’t happen. Then even if you don’t get your thumb out quick enough, it doesn’t get smashed with the full force of the operating rod spring.
